Fascia: What it is and why it matters
THE must-read book on Fascia
If you are only going to read one book about fascia, this should be it!
This is a true masterpiece. It takes the reader on an entertaining journey into ‘fascia land’ from both a lay person’s as well as a clinician’s perspective.

David has a way of explaining complex ideas in understandable terms without dulling the scientific edge or cheapening the argument.

I have a small library of references on fascia that I have been collecting, reading, referring to for over 20 years. David's book is one of the most readable, with illustrations that are large and well captioned. The chapters build on one another. The writing is excellent, and complex ideas are explained with clarity. The material on the brain is the most up-to-date, comprehensive and well illustrated that I have come across.

This book serves as a primer for professionals, such as doctors, physical therapists, osteopaths, massage therapists, and fitness professionals, to give them a good grasp of what fascia is and what it does in the body.
It gives the reader an understanding of fascia as a tissue, its role in the various systems of the body and its clinical significance. By the end of the book the reader will have a solid working knowledge of fascia. This book is complete unto itself, but also serve as a springboard to deeper explorations should the reader choose to do so.
The book has a strong storyline, with each chapter logically connecting to the next, rather like fascia itself! It is informative and satisfying to read.
